Large Empire period clock in chiseled, gilded and patinated bronze, early 19th century.
This refined clock addresses the theme of motherhood and shows the intimate relationship between a mother and her baby, which she was going to in a very elegant setting. Both are seated on a precious sofa embellished with lion heads; under the statue the trapezoidal case, in patinated and gilded bronze decorated with the Amalthea goat suckling Jupiter, contains the movement; the case rests on four gilt bronze lions resting in turn on a rectangular four-legged patinated bronze base.
This clock was almost certainly made to celebrate the birth of the son of Napoleon I and Marie-Louise of Austria in 1811.
This magnificent clock, of museum quality, is entirely from the First Empire period: the movement is contemporary with the case, the bronzes and gilding are authentic. A certificate of authenticity is attached. The original mercury gilding is in excellent condition, with alternating gloss and matte hues; the movement, with wire suspension and striking bell for the hours and half-hours, is complete with balance wheel and original key.
On request the clock is delivered in perfect working order, after revision by our trusted watchmaker.
